This cemetery is in a field, but is fenced and reasonably well kept. I have some concerns about the quality of the fence protecting the cemetery. There are cattle all around the cemetery. If the fence ever falls the cattle will destroy this cemetery, by rubbing against the stones breaking them or pushing them over which will cause breakage.
